Send me a small zip file that shows the problem? I"ll run it on my Linux system to see if I can figure out where the issue is coming from. I've never had any such issues on my own Linux setups.

my compile retrofe (with 1 video(bygone.mp4) and 1 ghost zip file)

the youtube video problem

one video snap (bygone.mp4)

one thing i noticed, is that the noise occurs only the first time the video is played, when it starts to play for a second time it sounds normal.

It does seem like there's something with the audio that doesn't agree with the gstreamer codec. Do you hear the same problem under Windows?

It's not just your distribution; I hear something similar on my Kubuntu installation as well. Just haven't found the time to try this under Windows yet.

It seems to be a Linux only issue, and has to do with the volume controls. It's triggered by animated volume as well as the default fade-in that's in the code. I've been running a few hours worth of tests, but no luck in getting rid of it thus far. Something in these videos (and I found a lot that have this issue) triggers something in the Linux codec for gstreamer.
